Why does everyone hate Joe Satriani? I think he's an amazing guitarist & musician.

It's because he's one of the most well-known examples of someone who is so focused on the technical side of playing that his music is bland and boring. Also, he's always seemed like kind of a jackass.

Pretty much. And his fans are the most snobbish f*cks on earth. Anything you put on isn't as fast or as talented as Satriani's stuff.

Default Joe Satriani drops lawsuit against COLDPLAY

If you haven't heard Coldplay was accused of stealing the melody to Joe Satriani's song called "If I Could Fly" the song Coldplay released was called "Viva La Vida" I believe that Coldplay won awards for this CD and not sure but I think the song also. But its really not the point. I love Joe's music and have listened for a long time....but I also listen to Coldplay and I have heard both songs and Coldplay totally stole the melody....I couldn't believe it. Joe should have held out for them to have to admit wrong doing....but they still had to pay royalities. I really hope if this song gets played on the radio that he gets royalities for it too....the whole thing just frosted my buns. Never steal something from another artist....just not right

Having heard both, I think its just a coincidence. There are only so many different notes you can play in so many different orders. Pretty much all music sounds similar to another peice of music.

Appearantly, they're both predated by yet another version of "that song" by Enanitos Verdes.



The tone-deaf idiot who made this vid decided to overlap them now and then in this vid which is obviously not a good idea since they're not all played in the same key and tempo, but some parts are okay for comparisons.

Hey - I once randomly hummed that generic succession of notes back in '82.
I'm rich.
